La Toussière, family, and sporty

Let us cite for example the resort of La Toussuire which has been the cradle of ski competitions since 1937. Its modernism is dated but recent high-end hotel projects give it an air of renewal. With a family and sporty character, the resort is a small town in the mountains. Located in the heart of the domain, at an altitude of 1750 m, La Toussuire opens directly onto 310 km of linked slopes. It also offers you a 360° panoramic view and an exceptional level of sunshine. Located at an altitude of 1750m, the resort enjoys exceptional sunshine, optimal snow cover and offers a 360° panoramic view.

42 slopes for all levels over more than 1000 meters of vertical drop and 3 snow areas for beginners and a new fun area. Many off-ski or après-ski activities are offered: snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, dog sledding, sledding, etc.

But there is a life after skiing, or for the names skiers who accompany you … a busy life, the resort offers many additional activities. Fly in the air (paragliding, speed riding, plane ride, acro jungle trampoline), play muscher (rides and initiation in sled dogs), ride on snow (snowmobile), experience the great cold (ice skating). .. You choose ! And those for whom holidays rhyme with “relaxation”, La Toussuire is full of sweetness: Your toes fanned out in front of the Aiguilles d’Arves, you sunbathe on the terrace, you laze in the jacuzzi with a view of the snowy slopes , you treat yourself to some shopping time on the pedestrianized and lively Rue Blanche… you read books and learn about religious Baroque art.

A ski-in ski-out area

The Corbier resort was created in 1969, driven by the growing success of snow holidays. Les Sybelles also has four traditional villages including Saint-Jean-d’Arves. The whole makes up the Savoyard area, the fourth largest ski area in France. With 69 ski lifts and 136 runs for all levels between 1100 and 2620 meters above sea level.
